Future House Must Haves


While shopping for our next house, we came up with a list of things that were absolutely necessary for us to consider a house, as well as a list of not necessary, but totally a plus if the house has it kind of thing!

Here's the list!

Must Have:
3 bedrooms
.5 acre - 1.5 acre
Open kitchen (or a kitchen that had potential to be open)
Large dining space
Nice, safe neighborhood
Good school district (I'm a planner, what can I say?! ha!!)
Storage (Linen closets, pantry, broom closet, etc)
Lots of natural light

And the list of nice to haves:
Tall ceilings
Hardwood Floors
Easily accessible bathroom for guests
Laundry room (not laundry closet)
4 bedrooms
Office space

We toured a ton of houses in a lot of different areas to help us narrow down where we really want to be.

I'm so glad we did this because where I thought we wanted to be, was definitely not where we ended up! Hahaha!
